Experienced New York City Law Firm Aids Clients in Nursing Home Negligence Cases

Steadfast and compassionate attorneys advocate for victims of neglect and abuse

Negligent treatment at nursing homes is all too common and should not be accepted. If this type of abuse has affected you or an elderly loved one, you need a determined law firm on your side that will hold the responsible party accountable. The Case Handler team at Pollack, Pollack, Isaac and DeCicco, LLC in New York City has extensive experience fighting for the rights of vulnerable nursing home residents who have suffered serious injuries due to subpar care, as well as the families of those who have died. When you need help, you can trust our skillful attorneys to represent your interests with sensitivity and compassion, while at the same time aggressively pursuing legal recourse.

Informed legal counselors understand signs of nursing home negligence

Here are some common signs of possible neglect and abuse:

  • Untreated or infected bedsores
  • Malnourishment and dehydration
  • Unexplained bruises, cuts or broken bones
  • Soiled bedding or clothing and other unsanitary conditions
  • Depression, mood swings or anxious behavior around nursing home staff

We have strong insight into the indications that problems exist at nursing homes and will carefully examine your case to discover if the home is violating their legal duty. From there, we’ll explain what steps you can take to obtain relief.

Diligent lawyers strive to hold substandard elder care facilities liable

Nursing home owners and operators can be held liable for the problems that occur in their facilities. Many senior residences are understaffed, which contributes to neglect and injuries. In other situations, nursing homes may hire people who are unlicensed or not properly trained. Also, in the age of COVID-19, New York nursing homes that did not or do not have proper protocols in place to combat the virus may be held responsible if injuries or death result from this failure. Our firm investigates the facts to identify each potentially liable party before working to secure adequate compensation for your damages.

Effective litigators pursue compensation for nursing home patients

In a case arising from nursing home negligence or abuse, compensation may be awarded for damages such as:

  • Medical expenses for treatment, surgery, rehabilitation and other costs
  • Pain and suffering for physical pain and emotional trauma
  • Punitive damages for the willful or reckless deprivation of residents’ rights

There are just some of the damages that may be requested for in nursing home negligence cases. Our adept attorneys will review all the facts to advise you regarding the amount of compensation that might be available and fight to maximize your recovery.
